4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle aged 1yr. Pours dark with a defined off white cream colored foam head. The aroma is chocolate filled, subtle bourbon, oak, sweet dark malts, vanilla, sugar sweetner, and lactose. In the flavor I picked on vanilla, soft bitterness, mild booze, minor bourbon, creamy lactose like taste, with a malty and chocolatey backbone. The finish is very smooth, drinkable, and had nice sweet notes. Overall this is a very good brew. I’d have this one again.

Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a dark black/brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate and some bourbon from the barrell aging. The taste was of chocolate, some slight coffee notes and a touch of licorice. Awesome.
